Finnish police have released Mazi Simon Ekpa, popularly known as the Biafran Spokesperson, and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu disciple in Biafra Restoration, hours after he was arrested and grilled.
Mazi Ekpa was later released on Thursday evening after the Finnish police allegedly arrested him for a suspected crime connected to the growing unrest in the southeastern region of Nigeria.
The Finnish Central Criminal Police confirmed Ekpa’s release on Thursday, according to HS reports.
The police claimed that its operation and subsequent arrest were in connection with the ongoing preliminary investigation.
“The person being questioned today is suspected of a crime. We will return to the title on Friday,” Tommi Reen from the Central Criminal Police told HS during a phone interview.
